Lyrics and Music by James Keogh


Intro: Am G | C  } 2 times

Am              G                C
I was scared of dentists and the dark,
Am              G
I was scared of pretty girls
    C
And starting conversations.
    Am         G               C
Oh, all my friends are turning green,
           Am           G
You’re the magician’s assistant
         C
In their dream.

       Am G   C
   Ah, oh-ooh-oh,
       Am G         C
   Ah, oh, and they come unstuck.

Chorus:
     Am    G                   C
     Lady, running down to the riptide
                       Am
     Taken away to the dark side.
     G               C
     I wanna be your left hand man.
       Am
     I love you
     G                        C
     When you’re singing that song and
                        Am
     I got a lump in my throat ‘cause
     G                       C
     You’re gonna sing the words wrong.

Am                 G                   C
There’s this movie that I think you’ll like,
     Am             G
This guy decides to quit his job
    C
And heads to New York City.
     Am       G               C
This cowboy’s running from himself,
    Am                G                C
And she’s been living on the highest shelf.

       Am G  C
   Ah, oh-oh-oh,
       Am G         C
   Ah, oh, and they come unstuck.

Chorus:
     Am    G                   C
     Lady, running down to the riptide
                       Am
     Taken away to the dark side.
     G               C
     I wanna be your left hand man.
       Am
     I love you
     G                        C
     When you’re singing that song and
                        Am
     I got a lump in my throat ‘cause
     G                       C
     You’re gonna sing the words wrong.

Bridge:
   Am                           G
   I just wanna, I just wanna know
   C                                  F
   If you’re gonna, if you’re gonna stay,

   I just gotta, I just gotta know.

   Am               G
   Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer
   C
   That you’ve ever seen, oh.
